Bet this never happens to Oprah.

Former talk show host Phil Donahue gets searched while going through airport security at Los Angeles International Airport on Thursday.

Donahue was creator and star of the very first tabloid talk show on television.  The Donahue Show ran for 29 years -- first on local t.v. in Dayton, Ohio and then nationally.

He also hosted a talk show on MSNBC from 2002-2003.

Most recently, in 2007, Donahue served as Executive Producer and Co-Director for the feature documentary film,  Body of War, which told the story of Tomas Young, a severely disabled Iraq War veteran and his postwar struggles.
